So our Giant Malaysian Shield Praying Mantis malted today, the 1st time while we’ve had her and what a difference in size. #prayingmantis #giantmalaysianshieldmantis #giantmantis #shieldmantis #gaintmalaysianshieldprayingmantis #malt #malted #exoskeleton #mantisexoskeleton #growningmantis

SPOT THE MANTIS!

The story behind this wasn’t the funniest at the time but I can laugh about it now 😂. I was moving this little shield mantis over into a new tub after it’s molt, only realizing I needed the mesh on top of its current one. Thinking nothing of it I simply took it off and began attaching it to the new one, left my little buddy sat on top of his tub... I turned around and he had disappeared, completely! Planted my face against the floor to see if had fallen (considering the beardie has access to the floor I was indeed crapping myself) he was no where to be seen on the wall and shelves so I gave up, messaged Jordan like “I’m sorry I’ve lost a mantis”. Now this guy is TINY and after 2 days I walked in and found him on the highest point of the ceiling, there’s plenty of cobwebs and other obstructions but he had made it!! #shieldmantis #mantis #prayingmantis #mantids

Guess who's an adult now!! Aaand still startled by the water droplets :)

A dubia served rare 😋. Submission by @mantis_diabolica 😊, inspired by my bug eating closeups 😆. I love it! It looks almost bloody 😀. #deroplatyslobata #shieldmantis #mantis #mantid #prayingmantis #nymph #bug #alien #insect #entomology #invertebrate #cat #cute #leafybutts #bulbouseyes #macro #livingart #gorgeous #bugslife #submission #yum #bloody
